What can i Upgrade?


Memory (RAM)

What does RAM do? Ram enables your computer to do more tasks at once simultaneously. Meaning you can run many programs all at once and multitask between each program with ease. Ram comes in increments of 4Gb, 8GB, 16GB 32GB and so on. These days programs have become a lot more demanding for ram although we recommend between 8GB and 16GB for the Average user.


Solid State Hard Drive (SSD)

SSD standings for (solid-state drive). It's a storage device very much like a hard disk (HDD). Although they generally have much less storage capacity. The difference between a standard HDD and an SSD is the Speed. Up to 10 Times Faster than a conventional HDD. SSD is a flash storage device like a USB storage stick. The benefits of this over a standard HDD is that there is no moving part. Thus it's significantly faster. These are usually used to store your operating systems on. This hugely increases performance. The come in increments of 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB. The downside of SSD is Price. You are sacrificing size for Speed and Cost.


Processor (CPU)

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Think of the processor as the brain of the computer. The faster the CPU, the quicker the thoughts are passed through your brain. You can think faster! In relevance to computers. The processor will let your computer do tasks much quicker. And run even more powerful programs at quick speeds.In Computing the speed of the processor is measured in GHz. The higher the number, the faster the processor. But these days we have threads and cores aswell. A core means how many brains CPU has in one head. and the threads means how many thoughts can be run at once. We have two major brands in ComputingComputing. Intel and AMD, The choice you choose is a discussion you can have with one of our technicians.


Hard Drive Storage (HDD)

HDD stands for Hard disk drive. HDD is now an old storage technology that will soon be surpassed by solid-state hard drives. The downside to HDD's is because it has physical moving parts within the device. It can be prone to damage or deterioration. Because the parts moving inside are moving very fast. 7200RPM to be precise. Think of an HDD as an old vinyl disk, playing with an arm and pin reading the music. If the arm slips, the pin scratches the vinyl damaging the music. That's kind of how an HDD works. But more complex but rather than damaging music it's damaging your data. The benefits of HDD are storage to cost ratio. You can get lots of storage for your money. But this is sacrificed for speed. The opposite of an SSD.


Graphics Card (GPU)

GPU: this stands for Graphics Processing Unit. A GPU is a device used to play games, boost graphics and render videos (if you're into making videos). Or enable you to have more than one screen connected to your computer. Think of a Graphics card like an advanced calculator. The better the graphics card, the better the calculator. The faster it can calculate sums. Those sums being calculating parts of a game or part of a video as one of the main factors of a game is calculations. Graphics cards can also be used to create cryptocurrencies. Because of its calculation has this capability. You can set a graphics card up to earn you money!

Why is cooling important to your computer? As your computer has electrical components inside it. Cooling is critical. Particularly with the CPU and GPU! The more demand and stress you give them. The hotter they will become. Also the more powerful, CPU and GPU you have they also produce a lot of heat as a byproduct of the power it gives you.These days there are two types of cooling in computing. The conventional. Air cooling is simply a lump of copper, encased in aluminium with a fan blowing air through and around the copper and aluminium.Water cooling! With water cooling, you have something called a block. A block is a lump of copper sat on top of your GPU or CPU. On top of the block are pipes containing cooled liquid. These pipes lead to and from your block. And to and from the radiator that cools the liquid down.



The motherboard is an essential component of any machine. It brings everything together and makes everything talk and communicate with each other. If the CPU is the brain of the computer. Then the motherboard is the spinal cord and nervous system to the body. The better quality motherboard you upgrade. The more that you get out of your components and the more fabulous upgrades you can perform. Motherboards come in several variations they are all to do with the type of CPU you plan on using.
